Earlier this week, Caesarstone, the leading manufacturer of premium quartz surfaces, unveiled a new installation by London-based designer Philippe Malouin at Milan’s Fuori Salone 2015. Entitled “Movements,” the installation occupies two rooms in the grand palace Palazzo Serbelloni.
In the grand hall sits a minimalist black swing-set made of the brand’s newest surface designs – an innovative and interactive way to demonstrate the beauty and versatility of the materials, which are typically used for kitchens and countertops.
In the next room, 20 planters made with more Caesarstone quartz surfaces show Malouin’s process, and demonstrate once more the surprising versatility of the surfaces. Modern and geometric in style, the planters come in a range of techniques, from inlay to marquetry to tiles. The sizes and colors are also diverse, and create a dynamic visual rhythm of plants and stone. Malouin said of the project, “For me the starting point was the exploration of the material. Caesarstone is extremely versatile, easy to predict and work with, and offers a variety of colors and finishes. I therefore experimented with a series of techniques and applications ranging from the mundane to the more experimental.”
